Events Meta



I’ve been sitting on this idea for about a month now, and I figure it’s about time I put it out there, and get some feedback. Partially inspired by PechaKucha, I’d like to create some sort of monthly meetup at Cafe Pause for creators/designers/writers to get together and talk about current projects, current trends, etc. Unlike PechaKucha, the idea here is for an intimate setting, where a small group of people can get together and have a conversation. Of course, eventually it could include using the cafe’s projector to do more, but for me, the interest is really in getting a small group of people of together to see what sort of interesting talk can come out of it. So PauseTalk (thank you Craig for the name idea) would probably be just right for something like 4-8 people. Now, I’m wondering if it would be best to create some sort of agenda, or just leave everything freeform, and let things go wherever. I’m still in the early planning stages, but I think it would be nice to start this within a month (May or June), and I’d love to hear from anyone who would be interested in participating.

More Ghibli News

There are supposed to be two new trailers on the Ghibli World site, one for Kazuo Oga’s TANEYAMAGAHARA NO YORU (NIGHT OF TANEYAMAGAHARA) and one for Isao Takahata’s GAUCHE THE CELLIST (here and here), but I can’t get them to load.

Also, they’ve launched an official site for the LEGEND OF EARTHSEA film. I usually hate sites that have music playing when you visit them, but for some reason it didn’t bother me at all here — it really is quite the haunting track.
